I have had some computer woes yesterday and today which, at last, seem to be resolved. So for today’s post, I am sharing a link from “Into the Bardo,” an inspirational sharing of prayers from various faith communities for peace. In view of the most unstable world situation, I invite to you stop by and, if you’re so inclined, choose one (or all) and join those of us who see no other approach to the predicament the world of nations faces at this moment in time.
Prayer for Peace Into the Bardo, posted by Cloaked Monk, Terri Stewart.
I would like to add another, well-known prayer, that of St. Francis:
The Prayer of Saint Francis
Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
Where there is sadness, joy.
O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
To be consoled as to console,
To be understood as to understand,
To be loved as to love;
For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
It is in dying to self that we are born to eternal life.
Have a peace-filled week.
